PURPOSE Several nerve repositioning techniques have ben presented in the literature, each with limitations. This article presents a new technique involving the use of 2 osteotomies, with minimizes particularly the potential duration of sensory disruption and the risk of nerve paresthesia and inadvertent nerve transection or compression. MATERIALS AND(More)
Useful in a variety of oral surgery procedures, piezosurgery has therapeutic features that include a micrometric cut (precise and secure action to limit tissue damage, especially to osteocytes), a selective cut (affecting mineralized tissues, but not surrounding soft tissues), and a clear surgical site (the result of the cavitation effect created by an(More)
Dental implant placement associated with augmentation of the sinus floor in the severely atrophic maxilla can be performed in 1- or 2-surgical stages, depending on the height of the residual alveolar bone. A minimum of 4 to 5 mm of residual alveolar bone height is recommended for a 1-stage surgical procedure. The present study describes a 1-stage procedure(More)
This study assessed the efficacy of augmentation grafting of the maxillary sinus with simultaneous placement of dental implants in patients with less than 5 mm of alveolar crestal bone height in the posterior maxilla prior to grafting, although the procedure has traditionally been contraindicated based on empirical data. A total of 160 hydroxyapatite-coated(More)
PURPOSE One-stage implant placement in the grafted maxillary sinus has traditionally been limited to patients with at least 5 mm of residual bone to ensure complete implant stabilization. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the long-term survival rates of implants with roughened surfaces placed immediately into maxillary sinus grafts in(More)
Dental care of the aging patient presents a number of problems not encountered in younger patients. Most of these problems result from tissue changes that occur during aging. Dental implants and implant-retained and/or implant-supported prostheses are viable treatment options for older patients. The majority of elderly patients in their younger retirement(More)
During 1992, 100 Minimatic screw implants made of titanium alloy (titanium-aluminum-vanadium) with a machined rough acid-etched surface were placed in 63 consecutive partially edentulous patients. At second-stage surgery, which was performed after a 4- to 6-month healing period, none of the implants showed signs of mobility, peri-implant infection, or bone(More)
In the event of moderate to severe mandibular bone resorption posterior to the mental foramen, repositioning of the inferior alveolar nerve provides a greater amount of available bone for implant placement and reduces the risk of nerve injury. While neural paresthesia may initially occur, this altered sensation generally resolves spontaneously. Alveolar(More)
Various facts demonstrated that UVB is harmful to organisms. Sunscreen compounds are usually used to prevent the excessive damage caused by UVB. However, certain photosynthetic organisms have evolved mechanisms to counteract the toxicity of ultraviolet radiation by synthesizing UV screening compounds such as mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs). MAAs provide(More)
